With a superb combination of optics, performance, advanced features and a durable design, the Canon 85mm f/1.4 IS USM Prime - EF Mount is an outstanding L-series medium-telephoto lens. As Canon's first 85mm L-series lens with IS capability, it has an advanced optical formula with a large-diameter aspherical lens, plus a bright f/1.4 maximum aperture to deliver gorgeous, sharp, and detailed images suitable for virtually any application. Its versatile combination of integrated image stabilization and a sophisticated design make it perfect for handheld use, even in harsh environments. Ideal for portraiture, and creating a natural sense of distance between the user and the subject with a variety of scenes and subjects, the EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM is engineered to perform and deliver the results professional photographers require.

IS Capability at up to 4 Stops* of Shake Correction

The EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM features an Image Stabilizer system that provides significant shake reduction for up to 4* shutter speed steps. This helps provide reliable handheld performance and clear image detail in low-light situations or at lower ISOs. Because of Image Stabilization, the EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM can also help minimize the need for a tripod, making handheld operation possible in a vastly increased number of scenarios from portraiture to snapshots and everything in between.  

Large, Bright f/1.4 Aperture

The EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM features a large f/1.4 maximum aperture, which produces a shallow depth of field for beautiful bokeh (background blur), captures at a fast shutter speed, with a bright viewfinder image as well as easy operation in low-light conditions. Combined with its integrated Image Stabilization, the EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM helps capture images in a variety of environments where other lenses may require the use of a flash or alternate light source.

GMo Aspherical Lens with Air Sphere Coating Technology

The EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM is engineered to help render crisp and clear images. For high-contrast images that remain sharp from corner to corner of the composition, it features a molded glass (GMo) aspherical lens, coated with Canon's Air Sphere Coating (ASC) technology for significantly reduced flare and ghosting from reflected light.

Dust & Water Resistant Professional Grade Design

Built to L-series specifications, the EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM not only offers optical excellence, but is also designed to perform in even the most challenging environments. It features dust- and water-resistant construction with seals around the switch panel, focus rings, and mount. The surface of the lens features a smudge-resistant fluorine coating that repels water and oil, and can easily be cleaned with a dry cloth.
